Care and Sharpening

  • Handwash gently: Avoid the dishwasher's harsh environment and wash by hand with warm water and mild soap. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Coat against corrosion: Apply a thin layer of food-grade mineral oil to the blade to prevent discoloration. Buff away excess.
  • Sharpen skillfully: Hone the blade edge regularly with a knife sharpener . Patience and practice lead to the ultimate edge.
  • Store with care: Keep in a knife guard or sheathed in a drawer. Never toss in a utensil pile.
  • Respect the cutting edge: Chop mindfully on a sturdy board. Avoid hard surfaces that may chip or crack the blade.

what are cleaver knives used for?

  • Chopping meat: Cleavers have thick, heavy blades that make them ideal for chopping through thick cuts of meat and separating meat from bones. The weight of the blade also makes it easy to chop through small bones.
  • Chopping vegetables: The wide blade of a cleaver can also be handy for quickly chopping vegetables like carrots, potatoes, squash, etc. The flat profile allows you to use a rocking chopping motion.
  • Crushing garlic and spices: The broad side of a cleaver's blade can be used like a pestle to crush garlic cloves, fresh ginger, spices, etc.
  • Tenderizing meat: Tapping a cleaver's spine against meat can help tenderize it by breaking down the muscle fibers. This helps make meat more tender and easier to chew.
  • Chopping nuts: Cleavers can chop through hard foods like nuts, chocolate, etc., which might damage the edge of a regular chef's knife.
  • Scooping and transferring food: The wide blade can also be used to scoop up chopped food and transfer it to pots and pans.
